Dylan Prime and Surrounding Area Recos

I am going to dinner at Dylan Prime on Sat night. I would love to hear some dinner reccomendations as well as any ideas for drinks in the area afterwards. I know DP has all these sauces you can get with your steak, anyone try any?

  1. I like Dylan Prime. Their fondue appetizer is very good and my wife enjoys their "carpetbagger", which is essentially a steak stuffed with oysters. I have not had any of the sauces but their steaks are good without them. They have some great cocktails. The chocolate porterhouse is an intersting dessert that you will want to try. That area is a little dead but the restaurant has a lounge called Dylan Lounge which is pretty good. The Tribeca Grand is not too far away and their Church Lounge is also pretty good, but expensive.

    1. I've had two fantastic meals at Dylan Prime. The filet mignon was so tender - one of the best I've ever had. I ordered the bearnaise (?) sauce both times because it was so good. The second time I went I had the surf and turf (filet and lobster tail) - both delicious. If you want to go for drinks afterwards - the bubble lounge is great for champagne. If you're looking for something more casual, the tribeca tavern has a ton of different beers.

          At Dylan Prime, I've had their NY Strip with Parmigiano Reggiano "Chapeaux" - the steak was good, not the best strip i've ever had, but the Chapeaux was pretty cool. Very different, but of course also a little rich. The chicken is nothing special. My husband really liked the tuna. They have a great burger that is only listed on the bar menu, but they'll serve it in the dining room. Also, they make a really nice Caesar.
